BUFFALO, NY (BNFF Release/WKBW) The Buffalo Niagara Film Festival welcomes all to this 10 day international film festival and market, open to the public, filmmakers, and entertainment industry professionals, that will take place from APRIL 16 – 25, 2010 at various venues around the Buffalo-Niagara region.

Organizer Bill Cowell spoke to Channel 7's Jon Summers Friday on "AM/BUFFALO" and encouraged people to visit the Buffalo Market Arcade Theater, The Riviera Theater, and other venues. Cowell noted that film lovers can sample independent, short, and other film projects while actually meeting the people involved in the projects.

Some of the films shown at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival will go on to compete in other venues, with their creators seeking broader distribution. For many of these films, this will be the first time the public will have a chance to see and discuss them.

The BNFF is an opportunity to showcase creative writing, film and video arts, and the people who passionately pursue following their dreams of sharing the fruits of their labors with others from around the world.

The BNFF is the place to be to come together and celebrate this shared passion for film, film making, and writing. With the backdrop of Buffalo and Niagara Falls, the promise of Spring, and the beauty and power of the Falls, The BNFF offers a place like no other. We are a filmmaker’s palace. A place hosted by filmmakers and screenwriters for filmmakers and screenwriters.

In addition to film screenings, industry leaders and others will present seminars and panel discussions on topics of interest to filmmakers, screenwriters, and entertainment industry professionals. Opening and Closing Night Galas, Filmmaker Receptions, and a Festival Expo featuring products and services from BNFF Sponsors and others will be held during Festival week.

A Film Market will also be held during Festival Week to provide filmmakers, distributors, and buyers the opportunity to network and conduct business like any other major festival in the world.
